Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

“It’s always a good day to plant a tree,” said Dr. Dale Droge, Professor of Biology.

Droge, a member of the campus tree advisory committee, joined several faculty and staff from Dakota State University this Arbor Day to plant a Linden tree on campus. The university has observed this tradition for many years. There are well over 200 trees on campus, several conifer species, and 20 deciduous.

This is also the seventh year the university was recognized as a Tree Campus USA. This national program was created in 2008 by the Arbor Day Foundation and sponsored by Toyota to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals.
